I would like to see this guy test out the actual Motorcraft Diesel Fuel Additive. I have tried a lot of the additives out there and the Motorcraft one actually produces the best MPG of all that I have tried. Needless to say, that's the one I now use in every tank.

Interesting...I've never tried the Motorcraft. It costs almost twice as much as Diesel Kleen (about $1.5 per tank for me; Motorcraft would be $2.7 per tank). Wonder if it makes up for it with the mpg difference?

That would be like adding a gallon of fuel for me at 16+ miles per gallon. But that's not the reason people need to use additives.....it's to lubricate the HPFP to a point to prevent a failure due to poor lubrication.



If an additive supplied the proper lubrication to prevent the HPFP failure as long as you use it, but gave NO other benefits would you use it???

Most definitely, and that's why I use them. The added mpg is just a side bonus. It would be nice to see the motorcraft fluid tested to see if it provided any better lubrication than the ones that scored the highest.

Would have been a more comparable - meaningful test, if he would have used diesel mixed with the recommended amount of each additive -- running straight additive does not allow for the chemical action the fuel mix provides

Like to see the test ran again -- would the results be different?

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

I doubt it. If you haven't read the study posted a couple pages back it's really worth the read. They treated the fuel as per the instructions ans sent the samples to a real deal lab for testing. Howe's didn't do good there either.

So strong is Tradition that later generations will dream of what they have never seen.
